I have been using mutt for my e-mail for quite some time now. I tried to install a bug-tracking system but it sends an e-mail confirmation for the login to the local user (i.e. root@localhost).

How can I have the local e-mail routed so I see it in my mutt inbox?

Note that the specifics of the answer to this question depends on the MDA (e.g. procmail) and MTA (e.g. Exim, Postfix) you have installed, not the MUA (i.e. mutt). –  Aristotle Pagaltzis Apr 27 '13 at 22:21

The solution is to add the file .forward on the home directory of root and add the other user name in the first line.
